PopUp Input Fields - Best Implementation

What is the best way to create a popup screen that lets you input information right overtop of your currect screen? I tried to do a PopupScreen but i couldnt had a button to it. Basically i want to have a form that will collect information and then the user will select the "Submit" button. Can you provide a small sample as well? Thank you in advance.

PopupScreen is the way to go, It is no more difficult to use that MainScreen.  Have another shot.

I will give it a shot. I probably just wasn't doing something right. Thank you

I was going to give you a sample, but looked at it and decided it really wasn't worth the space!  If you have any problems come back to us. 

 

FileExplorer sample in the JDE has one, its called:

FileExplorerDemoScreenFileInfoPopup.java

 

Do use Buttons rather than any other method of closing the screen, as this makes it Storm friendly.
